For those of you who are not quite ready to give up your caffeine addiction, skip that night out at the bar or completely eliminate meat or carbs from your diet, this is the diet book for you. Actually, it isn’t really a diet book per se, more of a guide for transforming your bad habits so that they aren’t quite as dangerous to your health. David J. Clayton provides realistic and simple tactics that can help you lessen your bad habits rather than trying (and potentially failing) to cut them off cold turkey. With these simple strategies it won’t be long until you truly can skip that cup of coffee. One step at a time.

Just look into the droopy eyes of the furry friend waiting patiently at the foot of your bed, silently pleading with you to just come outside and play! The sad truth of the matter is that most dog owners today simply don’t provide their pups with the right amount of exercise, and our dogs are becoming just as inactive as we are. One walk around the block usually isn’t enough; dogs need exercise that will keep them physically and mentally stimulated. This book provides tons of fun and easy exercises for dog owners that are beneficial for man and his best friend.

His nutrition advice also allows for a hipster’s diet: lots of vegan, earth-friendly, and exotic foods that are healthy, cheap and tasty.
